Women's Leadership Program

As a part of the affiliation between Mount Vernon College and the George Washington University, the Elizabeth J. Somers' Women’s Leadership Program (WLP) was established to continue Mrs. Somers' vision of education and community engagement for women.

The WLP, a selective, year-long, living and learning program for freshmen women, focuses on giving young women the tools they need to become effective future leaders. WLP students have the benefit of small classes, close contact with faculty and women in leadership roles, and strong community ties within the program. The WLP and Women’s Leadership Conference are both a part of Mrs. Somers' continuing legacy of education in leadership for women.
